Last week QVC cancelled an appearance by Jane Fonda just hours before she was set to appear. The network received an unspecified number of callers who opposed Jane’s appearance due to the continued hate fueled lies regarding her protest of the Vietnam war.
Jane’s appearance on QVC, which had been scheduled for months, was supposed to be a discussion of her new book, Prime Time, about healthy aging that will be released on August 9th.
Today on her blog -- www.janefonda.com -- Jane posted a detailed account of her trip to Hanoi. We must stand with Jane and support her courage to combat such hate fueled rhetoric, which aims to create the myth that opposition to war means hatred of one’s country.
Extremist organizations have shamefully begun using the QVC cancellation to continue to spread lies and hate. One email from the extremist conservative PAC ‘Move America Forward’ recounted lies about Jane’s advocacy that have been debunked numerous times over the past 40 years. While suggesting she be tried for treason, and calling her a Communist, they ask for money and vow to “never forget”.
We stand with Jane against these vicious attacks, and support her in standing up to extremists who do not care about the pain they inflict on Veterans and their families by spreading horrific lies.
Enough! Time to take action: We Stand with Jane for Truth.
